They've done it! Full-time. Take a deep breath: Italy 1. New Zealand 1.
Andy Barron - a banker by trade - comes on for Killen.
Nelsen is booked - I have no idea why.
Vicelich - another solid performer - departs in place of Christie. A like for like swop.
"Maybe a tactic for the New Zealand Team. Pass it back to the last defender then Kick it like a drop goal attempt. From watching them play I would say it May create more chances for them?" Sean Quirke.
Another sub - Fallon goes off, possibly for his own good, and on comes 18-year-old Chris Wood.
Pazzini comes on for Italy. Marchisio - ineffective throughout - departs after a quiet afternoon. Italy going for broke now with half an hour left.
Italy subs - Di Natale comes on for Gilardino and Camoranesi on for Pepe.
On the point of refs - how have you found them during the WC as a whole?
Any thoughts on that first half? Let me know: email@example.com.
Half time! The Battle of Nelspruit is 1-1 at the interval and we've seen some incredible stuff in that opening 45 minutes. Hope you enjoyed it! Stay tuned for the second half.
Parity is restored - Iaquinta lashes it into the right hand side of the net, sending Paston the wrong way.
GOAL! 1-1 ITALY! Iaquinta!
Oh dear, trouble here. Smith is tugging De Rossi and he gets booked.
PENALTY! ITALY PENALTY!
Fallon goes into the book for tangling with Cannavaro.
Speaking of gambling: "I think it is going to be goals galore for Italy, I can see them beating New Zealand by four or five goals to nil with Gilardino having a cracker of a game. I have stuck two pounds on Gilardino getting the first goal and Italy winning 4-0 I think I have an excellent chance of winning the bet." Liam Ferguson.
If you've called the match result, you can put your money where you mouth is at Skybet.com. Italy, as you'd expect, are heavy favourites - 1/5 on to see off the men from Down Under. The draw, which could be a good shout, is 5/1 and New Zealand themselves are way out there to win it at 16/1.
